    For more than 20 years, the Freddie Awards have given voice to the frequent flyer. First InsideFlyer, then FlyerTalk and now Milepoint will support that voice by supporting these awards. This year, we are randomly picking a member of Milepoint to win a new yet-to-be-released iPad3 in support of getting out the vote for the Freddies. We welcome all members of Milepoint to cast their voice and their vote HERE. We can think of no better way over the last 20+ years to applaud an industry that has added some pretty good value to our lives as travelers. The industry has long accepted the Freddie Awards as their report card and they do want to hear from you.

    Now, on to this iPad3 Giveaway. As stated, we're giving away 6 of them in a weekly draw and we're a little late on announcing our first winner. And let me explain and then you decide! As it turns out, there are actually 6 1/2 weeks of voting during the Freddie Awards. But we said we were giving away 6 of them. SO, do you have a drawing each Wednesday and then the remaining half week just gets left behind? Or do you stretch the first week so that it's really 10 days or so and draw each Saturday at midnight which means 6 iPad3s?

    Well, for those that have enjoyed Milepoint so far in our not-yet-one-year-old-status, you know what we are going to do. Yes, we've decided to give away an additional iPad so that the half week gets the same value on Milepoint as the full week. We'll now draw each Tuesday at midnight through March and then the last iPad winner will be chosen at midnight on Saturday March 31. SO, seven iPad3 winners in all.

    iPad3 WINNERS
    week 1: hpc
    week 2: Extra Pack of Peanuts
    week 3: jparker
    week 4: unavaca
    week 5: kw335
    week 6: cvarming
    week 6 1/2: redwoman

    "hpc" makes me think of HP-Compaq, the merged company that eventually gave rise to the failed TouchPad. Good to see them getting a decent tablet. (Even if we don't know the exact specs yet.)

    In all seriousness, congratulations!

    I'm surprised that Apple hasn't given him an iPad punch card yet. Buy 10, get one free!

    Apple has plenty of people tailing to buy the iPads. They don't want to give one for free, because someone else will pay extra for it.. :p

    I think the point is just to raise awareness. Anyone who's a MilePoint member can win through virtue of that alone.
